Milking the Dead

Milking the Dead

July 2019

In the 21st of July 2019 NME article Watch a beautiful new video for David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ to mark its 50th anniversary we learn how a new video has been developed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of David Bowie's Space Oddity.

Although the article states the video is "beautiful" it is, in my opinion, shite.

There are numerous videos and live recordings of Bowie performing Space Oddity, and does the world need yet another? I don' think so.

What does Bowie have to say on this matter - oh, he's dead or did they forget that small point? What gives them the right to take images of Bowie from the 1990s and splice it with the Space Oddity music?

Here's a link to this new rubbish: David Bowie - Space Oddity (2019 Mix) [Official Video]
